15. The body’s an envelope: and so it serves to contain what it then has to develop. The development is interminable. The finite body contains the infinite, which is neither soul nor spirit, but in fact the development of the body.

From Fifty-eight Indices on the Body (Corpus), Jean-Luc Nancy. New York, Fordham University Press, 2008.

15. Le corps est une enveloppe: il sert donc à contenir ce qu’il faut ensuite développer. Le développement est interminable. Le corps fini contient l’infini, qui n’est ni âme, ni esprit, mais bien le développement du corps.

From 58 Indices sur le corps et Extension de l’âme. Éditions Nota bene, Québec, 2004.

15. Il corpo è un involucro: serve dunque a contenere ciò che si deve sviluppare poi. Lo sviluppo è interminabile. Il corpo finito contiene l’infinito, che non è anima, né spirito, ma proprio lo sviluppo del corpo.

From Jean-Luc Nancy Indizi sul corpo. Ananke Edizioni, Torino, 2009
